This banana peanut butter jelly cake takes my favorite childhood flavors and combines them into an awesome layered dessert!
AMA. RBTL. FOMO. TBH. YSK. SMH.FTFY.
I feel lost with all these new abbreviations and acronyms. It makes me feel old and outdated. Sometimes I feel like Phil from Modern Family who thinks LOL means lots of love and WTF means why the face. And in case you’re wondering, here’s what the foreign language above means: Ask Me Anything, Read Between The Lines, Fear of Missing Out, To Be Honest, You Should Know, Shaking My Head, Fixed That For You.
I’m not a fan of all this internet slang. The list continues to grow everyday and I’m trailing far behind. For the most part, it confuses me more than it makes communicating easier. When I text message friends, I spell words out completely, use punctuation when needed, and over use exclamation points. If that makes me uncool, so be it.
I prefer to stick to the easy abbreviations are super straight forward. Take PBJ (or PB&J). We’re all on the same page when it comes to that meaning, right?
I cannot count the number of PBJs I’ve consumed in my lifetime. Too many, especially because I continue to enjoy them today. The combination of peanut butter and jelly is a flavor I may never tire of.
Sometime in elementary school (maybe 3rd or 4th grade) when I started packing my own lunches, I made my first banana peanut butter jelly. It was one of those lightbulb moments when I felt like a child genius. Add sliced bananas to your PBJ! It was just a monumental when I found out that banana and Nutella were delicious together.
I had that same ah-ha moment when I first envisioned this cake. I’m taking my favorite childhood flavors and turning it into a cake!
